GENERAL CONFERENCE

Item 21 of the agenda

(GC(47)/21)

ISRAELI NUCLEAR CAPABILITIES AND THREAT

On 19 September 2003 during the 10th plenary meeting, the General Conference endorsed the following statement made by the President:

"The General Conference recalls the statement by the President of the 36th session in 1992 concerning the agenda item "Israeli Nuclear Capabilities and Threat". That statement considered it desirable not to consider that agenda item at the 37th session.

The General Conference also recalls the statement by the President of the 43rd session in 1999 concerning the same agenda item. At the 44th, 45th, 46th and 47th sessions, this item was, at the request of certain Member States, re-inscribed on the agenda. The item was discussed.

Several Member States requested that this item be included on the provisional agenda of the 48th regular session of the General Conference."
